Marvell presents new SSD memory controller

Marvell has unveiled a new solid-state drive memory controller, known as 88NV1160. The new controller has been designed for SSDs with support for NVMe and it does not need DRAM memory in order to operate.

The 88NV1160 memory controller is housed in a BGA package and measures just 9 x 10 mm. This makes it suitable for use in M.2230 and M.2242 solid-state drives that are used in very thin devices. According to Marvell the 88NV1160 provides better energy efficiency than older models and can reach read speeds of up to 1600 MB/sec. The controller meets all NVMe 1.3 specifications and includes two ARM Cortex-R5 cores and SRAM memory. The 88NV1160 is compatible with 15 nm 2D TLC and 3D TLC/QLC memory and supports ONFI3 and Toggle2 NAND memory. The chip will be made on 28 nm production technology.

The Marvell 88NV1160 memory controller will be available later this year.
